Welcome to the forums LarryS. I'm currently waiting on an aftermarket black metal bracelet for my Leviathan. I tend to start with a cheap Chinese made item to see if it is going to work, before spending $50 and up on a 'good' bracelet. It should arrive within the week and pictures will be posted. Will look forward to the mods you intend to do to your watches as stated in you other thread.

I got one a couple of years ago and it is holding up well considering I wear it 40+ hours a week and never clean it. I think I paid $25-$35 for it off the bay.
the3dgm were did you get your black IP bracelet? I'm looking for one for a Venom, but not wanting to spend the $100+ that the Venom bracelets are going for.

From China, off ebay from the vendor Kingsbay. I also didn't want to spend 100+ dollars, and the least expensive one I could find in the States was $60 + shipping. I knew I'd have to modify whatever bracelet I got so spending that much on something I might screw-up was not an option. The one I got has a deployment release, a button, and no micro adjustment abilities. I was lucky that removing a couple of links, cutting the attachment links from 26mm to 20mm to work with Invictas set up on the Leviathan worked out very well! Also, the bracelet is of a much higher quality than what I was expecting for just under $20 with free shipping. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them here.

Nope, sorry can't do that for you vaderdaman! :sneaky2: If you look at the image of it on my wrist the cover between the links comes out when the spring bar is removed. The cover is stepped in on both sides so you still need a 26mm spring bar, BUT, it can only hold a 20mm strap end. Any questions, my young friend, just ask. :thumbup1: Sorry for the delay. . . I'm old!!!

Looks pretty good. Should have went with a two tone stainless outside links and the black IP inner links. I think that would have looked even better with that SS case and the black bezel. Just a thought.
All the ones I've seen on the bay are similar to the one you have pictured. Trying to figure out the best(looking) way to mount it on a Venom. For twenty bucks I just might give it a try.

Never mind about the two tone band. Did a search and they don't have them in the 26mm size.

Yes Sir, just finding 26mm bracelets is a bit of a challenge! :eek:hmy: And, no, I don't recall seeing a two tone anywhere. You're right though that would have been very nice. Good luck with the Venom!

Can not figure out how the Venom poly band comes off. Any one know what it takes to remove the band from a NON Interchangeable Venom? I thought it would be a regular spring bar pin. But I am unable to get the thing to budge. I have to get the band off first before I can see whether or not a cheap replacement band will be able to fit.
